WT327 & CSC44


I had an eye doctor’s appointment today, so I am stamping with one eye---very awkward, I must say!  I had a chance to play with some new SU sets:
Array of Sunshine and Happiest Birthday Wishes.  These will both be available in the upcoming catalog!  The WT327 challenge at SCS was to use vellum---something I have neglected for a while!  And I am playing Chupa’s CASE Study challenge for the first time!  Here is the inspiration card she is asking us to CASE:


Isn’t that a beauty?!  Since I am stamping sort of blind-sided, I chose to do a very simple card with a Tangerine Tango base and a vellum overlay that was embossed and punched:


Everything is pretty self-explanatory; I sewed the vellum on; cut out the flowers & leaves, added some glitter to the centers:


and used my stamp-a-ma-jig to realign the letters of the sentiment.  Thanks for visiting today!



Uh oh—what’s going on here?  Closet door open, door stop out from under the door, and the play mat totally upside down; hmmmm, must be a 10-month old on the loose!

  • Stamps:  Array of Sunshine, Happiest Birthday Wishes
  • Paper:  Tangerine Tango, WW, Vellum Cardstock
  • Ink:  Tempting Turquoise, Wild Wasabi

  1. this is hilarious ~ not your card, as always, your cards are fabulous, LeAnne you inspire me so much, just haven't done a whole lot lately, too busy in my garden...but Cassidy...hmmm...maybe gramma won't notice with one eye, so let's get into something ~ little monkey ~ lol

  2. WOW - great use of vellum - looks great

    Here we go! Cassidy is now a "mover and a shaker" - GM will have to wear roller skates to keep up. Doesn't seem possible she's alread 10 mo - mercy.

  3. ahhhhhh.. love the softness of this one! beautiful card!

  4. what a beautiful card, even done one-eyed :) love the colors.

    Cassidy's expression is precious !!

  8. I don't use my vellum often enough; thanks for a great idea for it! I must try it this week! As always, loving the pictures of DGD.....

  9. Super cute card Leanne, but has stiff competition from your gorgeous little grand daughter- what a little cutie, you must be such a proud grandma!
    Thanks for sharing at CASE study this week! :)

  10. Oh yay! I'm so glad to see you playing along, LeAnne! It's a wonderful take, I'm really dig the vellum :)
